SM Series Wire Rope Isolator

The unique design of the SM Series cable isolator makes it an ideal choice for lightweight equipment requiring a high level of shock & vibration isolation. The symmetrically balanced “S” shaped cables give these wire rope isolators a high degree of vertical stability (even under large excursions). It is this characteristic that makes the SM series wire vibration isolator vastly superior over similar mounts that have a tendency to collapse or buckle under large motions.
